Bringing AI to the Edge-Application Case

7/21/2020

Advantech AI Edge Solutions – MIC Jetson series, powered by full NVIDIA® Jetson™ platform, which gets all the performance of a GPU workstation in an embedded module.Featuring strict validation to ensure thermal, mechanical, and electrical compatibility, plus industrial-grade anti-vibration, high temperature operation capabilities, and modular, compact-sized design, Advantech’s MIC Jetson series are perfect hardware platforms for the surveillance, transportation, and manufacturing sectors.

Case 1 - Traffic Monitoring

MIC-720AI leverages AI inference technology to perform traffic monitoring on massive amounts of collected data; surpassing traditional vehicle recognition methods used for object tracking.

MIC-720AI fulfills deep learning computing requirements at the roadside, where metadata is packaged and transmitted to the central control room. It also provides multiple interfaces to integrate with other traffic equipment.

Case 2 - Quality Control in Cookies Factory

To maintain consistent quality for bakeries, MIC-720AI deploys various AI models to ensure that all cookies are well baked in the production line. Compared to traditional quality control procedures performed through visual inspection, AI inference detects subtle levels of difference in how individual cookies are baked, adjusts the oven to meet quality standards, and avoids under-baked or overbaked products.

Case 3 - AI Defect Inspection for Textile

AI inference requires high computation and needs a GPU-based solution to accelerate the computation. MIC-730AI is powered by an NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ GPU and is employed as the edge AI system. MIC-730AI's great processing power makes it possible to automatically inspect high-precision textile goods with better speed and accuracy.

Textile defect inspections using AI inference technology can efficiently identify the most subtle defects and ensure high quality products.

Case 4 - Multiple-model AI Inspection for Heat Sink

MIC-730AI conducts AI image analysis to compare and identify heat sinks with appearance defects.This is made possible by feeding AI model training system with images of defective products that collected from clients, prior to the import of software and hardware. After AI model completes relevant training, the trained models are placed into the MIC-730AI.

AI visual inspection can then be conducted to evaluate the flatness and identify crushes, stains, scratches and other defects that are difficult to categorize through general physical rules.

Case 5 - AI  Analysis: Identifying Critical Production Bottlenecks

The Human Factor Information Datamation AI System uses cameras to record worker actions and then analyze images and video through AI inference. This system assists foundries in identifying bottlenecks and improving production efficiency.

Five major electronic manufacturing service foundries adopt this systems. With the aid of AI deep-learning software, factories increased their Unit Per Hour (UPH) by 5% within only two months.

Case 6 - Improving Wait Time at Major Intersections

Taipei’s traffic lights’ lengthy countdowns exist to provide fixed and enough time for pedestrians to safely cross wide roads. Such arrangements burdensome around midnight when fewer pedestrians and vehicles traverse Taipei’s streets.

After deploying this AI system, night wait times at red lights on arterial roads decreased by 35% and arterial roads green light periods increased by 7 ~ 79%. Also, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions by around 23 tons every year and results in an annual economic benefits of around TWD 1.83 million for each intersection.
